The ISP Webpage Surfing gap

In this months report we have to ask why Vodafone is much slower than Orcon for webpage surfing!   Why are there such large gaps between ISP's surfing performance on the same plans?

ISP Copper Performance Gap

ADSL and VDSL show a considerable spread in performance for NZ webpage download times, Vodafone ADSL takes twice as long as the best ADSL Slingshot,  the worst VDSL Voyager takes almost twice as long as Spark.  73% of NZ households depend on ADSL to see their favourite websites.

The Need for Speed

Throughout August all 4 major ISPs with Fibre 100 service options (Vodafone, Spark, 2Degrees and Orcon), delivered more than 100Mb/s at all times. In addition, MyRepublic improved significantly at 9pm from previous months to 89% at 9pm.

TrueNet focused on the webpage download capability for ADSL this month, because our tests showed a wide spread of results with Slingshot being the standout performer, and Flip not far behind.

Five ISPs are achieving better than 95% of maximum possible speed for ADSL, and VDSL.  (ADSL - Flip, 2Degrees, Spark, Slingshot, and Orcon), (VDSL - Voyager, Spark, 2Degrees, Orcon, and Slingshot).
